Montana Ave Holiday Walk…A chilly evening in Santa Monica

IMG-20131206-00154I just have to tell each of you that I had a FANTASTIC night last evening at the Montana Ave. Holiday Walk.  It was even better then that thing called Halloween and I did not have to play dress up.  The other cool thing was Auntie Robin and Uncle Darrell came with me so my pack was bigger than usual.

The best part was all the treats, stares and adoration I received.  Dad said it was more then nauseating but his Downer Dad syndrome did not take away from my glorious time.

As with all my outings there is too many to count…”gorgeous, magnificent, stunning, etc.”  I love it because Dad has to be polite back and engage with my fans.  He said his favorite comment was when a big burly man came up to us and said, “that is the first real dog I have seen here tonight.”

Of course my favorites are the little children who want to pet and touch my ears.  I try my best to be nonchalant and not scare them too much with my size because some could ride me like a horse.  Enough about my fans lets get back to my adventures.

Then we walked up and down the street, hearing the sounds of Christmas and smelling all the wonderful treats.   I tried real hard to eat the ones dropped on the sidewalk but you know those parents of mine always wanting to make sure that I get my proper balance of proteins and healthy carbs…I guess popcorn and cookies are not in that category.

I did meet some new friends on the walk and it was fun.  Of course we ran into some uptight dogs that just were not too friendly and barked at me but I just walked on by because no one was going to dampen my evening out.

Finally we went to the cool pet store called To Wag For and it was crowded at the door by the humans wanting snacks.  What?  This is my store and I just barged right in.  It was great because Dad had to do all of the apologizing….I was on a mission…snacks and toys.  Santa came early and I got a Doggles Sillypulls and the nice lady  Jean gave me a treat.

As we walked back to the car I was a little tired and cold.  Dad said I was good and that made me happy.  I love my family and these things we call the holidays are a great time because you get to count your blessings and spend time with your loved ones.
